Career Education: The State of the Scene.
Office of Career Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
The resource guide for career education opens with discussions of the need for career education and a general introduction to the field. One-third of the guide is a State-by-State survey of career education efforts which contains each State's definition of career education, developmental activities, places to look at, publications, and the name and address of the State coordinator of career education. The guide describes in detail three career education programs (Cashmere, Washington; Mesa, Arizona; and Memphis, Tennessee) at the K-12 level and discusses teacher creativity, counseling and guidance, community and parental involvement, and evaluating career education programs. At the post-secondary level, the guide describes projects in six categories: consultant services; colleges and universities; "career counseling"; serving specific target groups; "non-institutional"; and institution-based serving a constituency outside the institution. The guide further provides suggestions for business, industry, professional, and government involvement in career education. A 27-page section on resource materials provides general references, sources of information, curriculum materials, evaluation materials, and resource information on career education projects. A brief concluding section states questions of concept, value, policy, implementation, evaluation, and research in career education. (JR)
